«Russian PMC - new generation» is a joint project of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation and the Council of Europe Directorate of Human Rights with the financial support of the Council of Europe Human Rights Trust Fund and bank VTB24.

The overall objective of the Project is to strengthen the public oversight of places of detention throughout the Russian Federation with a view to reduce the instances of ill-treatment there. This should lead to better implementation of the recommendations made by the European Committe for the Prevention of Torture and Inhuman and Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CPT) and ultimately reduce the number of cases brought before the European Court of Human Rights concerning detention conditions in the Russian Federation.
